How Can I Power My Outdoor Speakers?


All models of the Bose outdoor residential speakers will work with either Bose SA-5 amplifier or any 3rd amplifier/receiver that can handle 4-8 ohm speakers and are rated 10 to 100 watts per channel. For best results, use amplifiers with a minimum 60-watt output per channel. If you are incorporating your Outdoor Space into an existing Bose Soundtouch Entertainment system, a Bose SA-5 amplifier is required. This amplifier should be located indoors and then run wires from the speakers to the amplifier. Be sure to use direct burial speaker cable or place standard speaker wire in some type of protective conduit. Do not install the Bose SA-5 amplifier in an outdoor weatherproof enclosure. This will prohibit the control of the SA-5 amplifier with the Bose Soundtouch app.
